Man in Nike Balaclava
Highsnobiety / Eva Al Desnudo

When you think of “provocative headwear,” balaclavas and face masks are probably among the first to spring to mind. Having long sat on the sidelines of seasonal collections with few designers daring to roll them out as a serious in-line accessory, such pieces are set to make a big return this winter. For style wildcards like Bloody Osiris, it’s the only headwear to be seen in.

Exploring a colorful spectrum of balaclavas and face masks, our list is a balance of subtlety and risqué. Brands such as UNDERCOVER fortify the selection with a spate of more wearable options, whereas new face-covering iterations from brands including 99% IS bring the more avant-garde options that do away with convention completely.
